The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator

Spring is in the air and the festivals are starting to pick back up. This edition of The Pier’s Weekend Show Locator found plenty of reggae shows and festivals to keep you busy over the next three days including Bad Religion, Fortunate Youth, New Kingston, True Press, The Steppas, and many more.

Open House featuring Face to FaceIt’s officially spring and that means it’s time to head up the mountains for some late-season skiing and snowboarding before the snow is all gone. And if you need even more reason to hit the slopes, there are numerous shows to catch in the higher elevations as well.

Kicking off the weekend tonight is Iration as they close up the Bud Light HI-FI Concert Series at Snowmass Mountain. Iration then heads over to Telluride Ski Resort for the Mountain Town Get Down. Take the drive up the mountain on Saturday for a FREE show with Iration, The Expanders and Morning Fatty at the Heritage Plaza Mountain Village. Those that stay until Sunday can watch some under-dressed locals freeze in the Bikini Slalom and then fill up with the DJ and Luau at Gorrono Ranch.

The Empire OPEN HOUSE atop Mont Saint-Bruno takes place this Saturday in Quebec, Canada. This FREE event is presented by Monster Energy in collaboration with Volcom and supported by DVS Snowboarding, CAPiTA SNOWBOARDING, Union Binding Company, and Coal Headwear…these big name sponsors bring along a big name band with Face to Face performing after Punchline13 and DJ Vinyl Ritchie. In between the music, attendees will find jam contests, snowboarding demos, and free lift access!

But the big event this weekend is Bud Light Reggaefest at Mount Snow in West Dover, Vermont. The 3-day event features live performances Friday and Saturday night in the Snow Barn and outdoor parties in the Main Base Area Saturday and Sunday afternoons. This year’s lineup features Easy Star All-Stars playing Saturday night, with Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad and Inner Circle playing FREE shows during the afternoon parties on Saturday and Sunday. In addition to all the great reggae music, attendees can also grab a nice dinner at 1900 Burger for the Beer Pairing Dinner Series or catch the Sink or Skim annual Pond Skimming competition. But those brave enough will participate in Mount Snow’s signature event, The Duct Tape Derby. Competitors will race down the slope in custom-built crafts made from only cardboard, duct tape, zip ties, and paint for the titles of best slider, most creative, best kids only sled, and judges choice.

Remember to come by here every single Friday to see what shows are going on for the entire weekend. You may also view our built-in Show Locator, where you can search by artist & view all of their upcoming shows, with options to purchase tickets for select shows!
